Book Promotion – 3 Tips For Writers Using Social Media [Video]
We’ve discussed how to promote a book with blog comments. Interacting on social media can also drive traffic to your author page and help in your book promotion. This article will provide 3 tips for successfully using social media in your book promotion.
We’ve discussed the importance of engaging your audience on social media sites, so I won’t beat the drum of that in this particular blog post.
However, this post will reiterate how engaging on social media is akin to book promotion and can drive traffic back to your author page or blog.
Book Promotion Tip #1
- Leave relevant comments pertinent to your book’s subject matter on wall postings of a friend on Facebook. You will not only be engaging with the poster, but also capture the attention of their friends. Hopefully, the page you post on will have an already engaged audience, who are commenting, liking, and sharing content.
Book Promotion Tip #2
- On Twitter, develop mutually beneficial relationships with the people you follow. Provide useful feedback to their tweets to create a dialogue and join their already established audience on your book’s subject matter.
Book Promotion Tip #3
- On Tumblr, YouTube, Pinterest and all other social media sites, engage in dialogue with people who share a similar interest. Establish yourself as an authority on your book’s subject matter and include your website and book information in your profile.
It’s all pretty simple! Brand yourself as an authority and get your message in front of as many people as possible. You’re visiting social media sites anyway; why not engage with people who will help share your message?
